Bottom Line

Located in the resort area of Mati on the east coast of the Attica region, Hotel Mati is an upper-mid-range property with 70 homey rooms with sea views. There's a small rocky beach at the hotel and an outdoor pool with lounge chairs. Breakfast (included in the room rate) is served on a charming wooden terrace overlooking the sea (although the food gets mixed reviews). Some of the common areas could benefit from updating, and rooms still have tube-style TVs.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Mati


Classically styled hotel with sea views from pool, cafe, and rooms

The Hotel Mati is a classically styled property with warm, homey interiors, including a low-ceilinged lobby with rust-colored leather sofas and marble floors. There’s not much of a beach, but a set of stairs leads down to a rocky, natural shore where there are a few thatch umbrellas. The pretty pool area has a tile deck, white lounge chairs, and white umbrellas -- it looks out on the sea. Simple fabric directors chairs and wooden tables provide a spot for guests to eat their breakfast outdoors or drink a cocktail in warmer months and an indoor cafe with sea views and rattan chairs is available in colder weather. The hotel attracts more tourists than business travelers and can get busy during the summer months.

On the shore overlooking a rocky beach in Mati, near Athens

Located in the resort area of Mati on the east coast of the Attica region, just outside of Athens, the Hotel Mati is peaceful in the off-season but can get busy during the summer. There's a cinema across the road, and other hotels are nearby. The Athens International Airport is less than a 25-minute drive, and the Acropolis can be reached in less than a 45-minute drive. Parking at the hotel is free.

Spacious and homey, but dated 

Rooms are spacious with tile floors and homey decor including table and floor lamps and brown accent walls. Some of the furnishings are dated including tube-style TVs and brass-framed pictures on the walls. White headboards with rivet accents look fresh. Bathrooms in some rooms have small walk-in showers with handheld showerheads while others have shower/tub combinations. All rooms have mini-fridges, free Wi-Fi, and furnished balconies with sea views, though some views are more impressive than others.

Free American breakfast, outdoor pool, small beach, restaurant with room service, and free Wi-Fi

Hotel Mati's location outside of Athen's busy center means there's room for some nice features. One nice perk is an American breakfast that's served outdoors in warmer months, and while the seaside ambience is undeniably lovely, the food gets mixed reviews. The hotel is located directly on a small, rocky beach, and there’s a pretty outdoor pool area with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and outdoor showers for rinsing off. The on-site restaurant serves a la carte menus at lunch and dinner and there's also an indoor and outdoor cafe and a lobby bar. Both Wi-Fi and parking are free.
